Housing & Commercial Property Cleanup
Do you own apartment buildings, rental houses, or commercial property? If you do, then you know that keeping your property in good shape isn’t easy. Unexpected events occur. Maybe you’re dealing with a sewage spill, or you’ve discovered that one of your properties was used as a drug house. Whatever the issue, Bio Clean can help.
We are licensed, insured, and bonded. Bio Clean has been leading the state in providing decontamination services since 2000. Additionally, to save you time and headache, we will deal directly with your insurance company to make sure your property gets cleaned up as soon as possible.
Bio Clean offers mold remediation services. There are around 1,000 different varieties of mold within the United States alone. If you have a mold allergy, then you know exactly how detrimental an overgrowth of mold can be. Certain types of mold can cause serious respiratory problems and even death.
Our team follows the guidelines as outlined by the Environmental Protection Agency in eliminating mold. Before we begin, we start with a site inspection. We identify any contributing factors to the growth of mold, then we begin the cleanup process. If mold is forming because of moisture collection, then additional steps may be needed to prevent any future growth.
Mold is everywhere, but it can cause the most harm in those who have a compromised immune system. A few signs that your home or business might have a mold problem include symptoms such as:
- Fungal pneumonia
- Frequent upper respiratory infections
- Nasal congestion

Rodents & Hantavirus
Bed bugs are pests, and so are mice and other rodents. Mice, rats, birds, bats, and other small creatures can leave behind droppings that are dangerous to humans. The Hantavirus is particularly worrisome. A Hantavirus infection can lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome and lead to death. This isn’t the only disease rodents carry, either.
The droppings of rodents carry potentially harmful microbes. The first step to preventing the spread of the diseases rodents carry is through pest control. The next step to dealing with an infestation is cleanup.
Bio Clean can help you get a handle on the problem. We will clean and disinfect your space, ensuring that the harmful microbes are eliminated completely from your space.
Bird droppings can cause illness in humans. The most dangerous aspect of bird droppings isn’t the pathogens carried in the excrement, but rather the organisms and erosion that can develop in an area rich with bird droppings. Histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and other diseases are a result of fungus growing in the nutrient-rich accumulation of bird droppings. Additionally, parasites, bacteria, and other fungi may be present in bird droppings.
If there is a space on your property where birds often go to roost, then erosion of the surface catching their droppings is also a possibility. Bird droppings can speed up the erosion of metals such as steel, and permanently damage wood, drywall, concrete, grout, and more.
Do you have a vacant building that isn’t secure? Or do you rent property that is a known drug house? Dealing with a property that has been used as a drug house is tough. You face several concerns—personal safety, public safety, community health—and you may not know where to start.
We offer services to help you reclaim your property. We’ll start with an assessment of the property and then offer our recommendations. If needed, we will board up windows and doors, remove sharps, and removed decontaminates.

Are you concerned that your commercial building may contain asbestos? If so, we can conduct a test so you can know for sure. We offer Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) compliant asbestos sampling.
Asbestos is a small-fiber insulation that became popular because of it’s efficiency and low cost. Unfortunately, research is clear that asbestos is dangerous. Small fibers from asbestos can easily be inhaled. Once inhaled, they settle in the lower parts of the lobes of the lungs. The fibers cause small changes to the lungs and can cause cancer and other serious lung diseases.
If you suspect you might have asbestos in your building, call right away to setup an asbestos survey.

Bed Bug Cleanup
Do you or your have tenants with a bed bug problem? If you own an apartment building, the sooner you can eliminate bed bugs the better. Otherwise, you’re at risk for bed bugs spreading to your entire building.
These tiny pests stay close to humans. Unfortunately, though, they can live for up to a year without a meal. This means that if you purchased a property that was previously inhabited in the last year, it could have bed bugs. You could have a major infestation in no time from one bed bug. One bed bug can lay hundreds of eggs over her lifespan.
Where do bed bugs live?
After they’ve infiltrated a home or building, they take up residence in clothes, beds, pillows, sheets, curtains, rugs, carpet. luggage, baseboards, door frames—everywhere. They like to hide in crevices, soft materials, and corners. So, this includes nightstands, dressers, cabinets, closets—everywhere.
Bed bugs prefer to stay close to where humans sleep, though. Why? So they can eat while we sleep. Our blood is their food. Disgusting, right?
How do you know if you have bed bugs?
The first sign is usually unexplained bites on your body. People react differently to bed bug bites, but reactions range from nothing to redness, swelling, and intense itching. In some cases, bites can cause inflammation with a rash-like appearance. The one positive note—bed bugs apparently do not transmit diseases to humans while they are feeding on them.
Other signs include:
- Dark or rusty-colored spots on sheets, mattresses, curtains, blinds, along baseboard
- Small blood stains on sheets or pillowcases
- Bed bug egg shells or fecal spots
- Musty odor (this comes from the bed bugs’ scent glands)
